LexisNexis Pick for Chinese Drywall Filings
Lawyers involved in the massive Chinese drywall litigation pending in US District Court will use LexisNexis File & Serve system for document exchange, and case-file access and storage for all cases. All federal cases involving the drywall — which was used during the housing construction boom and is alleged to contain dangerous levels of sulfur that’s caused property damage and health problems in homeowners and their families — have been consolidated to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The litigation will be especially complicated, as it is expected to involve numerous parties. To streamline the process, lawyers involved in the case will upload court documents to file and serve for electronic tracking, storage and access. In a June installment of In This Corner, HousingWire interviewed Denise James, director of residential mortgage solutions for LexisNexis Risk & Information Analytics Group.
